National Hedgehog Day – 2nd February

More about: Charity, Environment, Nature

Thursday 2nd February is National Hedgehog Day and the team from Mix Mornings are all over it. Appropriately for those of us listening in St Albans, National Hedgehog Day is originally a roman tradition (think ‘Groundhog Day’ but with swords and sandals). Even better, the headquarters of the Hornbeamwood Hedgehog Sanctuary is actually located in Harpenden, where around 100 volunteers help to rehabilitate wild hedgehogs and orphaned baby hoglets that are sick, injured, or underweight.

On Thursday’s Mix Mornings, Iain Pritchard talks to Martin Maylin about the work of the sanctuary and the current fundraising appeal to get a new rescue vehicle.
